The privately rented housing market has largely catered for young, mobile people and students since it was deregulated in the late 1980s. In this volume, the editors provide a timely insight into this rapidly evolving market, asking: What is the nature of this market? How should we interpret what is happening through the government's and the EU's attempts to regulate worst practice and create a 'fair' commercial market and better management of the sector? Having liberalised the market, brought in new investment and generally improved the standard of housing is there now a danger that an over-regulated market might undermine investors' confidence?This volume is based on new, original research which brings together specialists in housing policy and legal studies, with their common and increasingly interdependent knowledge base about the privately rented sector and its future direction. The collection opens with an overview of the historical context and recent changes to the sector, such as the rapid and continued expansion of the buy-to-let market, followed by a discussion at the factors shaping the contemporary market. The contributors show how the new regulatory environment is opening a series of new issues that have significant potential to affect (and potentially damage) the market.This volume will be of interest to academics and students in social and public policy, law and housing studies, as well as law practices and housing authorities.
